Q. My wife and I own a home built in 1774 with stone foundations, and numerous stone walls I have built around our gardens. But when it comes to garter snakes, I run and cry like a baby. I know they are good for my gardens but one of us has to go. I can’t live with them, and need your help. I have tried moth balls and other home remedies, but we have many gardens, where the dreaded serpents sun and lie in wait for me. Any ideas, old friend?
